If money is no object, head to Oslo, Norway where the price of a 330 ml (11.2oz, which is smaller than an American can of Bud) is £2.87. That's nearly $4.80 USD

So the whole city is like one big concert venue?

Meh, they should go to an NFL game.

You'd be hard pressed finding a beer at a restaurant or event in Canada under $4.  Beer taxes suck up here.  When I went to Whitefish Montana I got beers for $1.50-$2.00 and a 1 liter mug filled for like $5

Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA (18%ABV) is about $11.00 per 12 oz. at bottle shops. To buy it in a bar would be even more than that.

$4.80 for 11 oz. of beer served in a bar would only be expensive if it's shiatty beer.

I regularly pay roughly $6.00+/- for a 10 oz. pour of 9%ABV+ craft beer in North Carolina, sometimes more for higher percentages.

Stupid article is stupid. It's impossible to compare unless you're pricing the same beer in every market across the globe.

The article we just read is one of the most insanely idiotic things ever printed. At no point in its rambling, incoherent typings were they even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having read it. No points will be awarded, and may God have mercy on our souls.

Homebrew is horribly expensive.  I mean, the ingredients for a batch are cheap, but I've invested far more in equipment than I'm ever likely to make back.

Well, the WSJ article, fox linked to has a bit more information, pricing the same beer across the globe dosent make sense either, because you would have to account for the fact that it will be an import in 90% of the markets that you are sampling

Yes, but it's far more simple to adjust the import/export market price for the one location that it comes from rather than utilize a random beer from whatever location in the data and try to make a direct comparison with the price of every other random beer they priced.

I think the only way to do it honestly would be to look at the cheapest beer in any market

The Moscow price of .84 pounds would put it at around 50 rubles at current exchange rates. Which leads me to wonder, are they talking about bar prices or in a store? Because the absolute cheapest beer I have ever seen in Moscow in a bar was 75 rubles, and that was at a beer restaurant chain that is pretty much the McDonald's of bars.
